Gate, Covid Testing & Parking Area Planning
This thread is to connect the responsible Realizers to work out the Event Entry Process.
This year besides checking IDs and tickets, people need to do a Covid test too. Gate would like to figure out a process together with Site Planning, Parking and Covid, as this cannot be done independantly this year.
Freiland Sommerfest (who used the same testing provider than we will) arranged the Event Entrance area like this:
Cars entering the site through the front pathway
before even driving on the parking area, a volunteer asks you to park your car at the field. -- Securities are positioned there as well --
you walk to the first tent where your ID, ticket and negative Covid Test/Vaccination Card are checked.
you go to the testing tent and get tested
you go to the waiting tent right next to it and wait for your result
once you get your negative result you go to the Gate tent where you present your test, ticket and get your wristband
then you go back to get your car and are allowed to drive on the parking area, park your car and set up your tent there
you can just enter the Gelände. No more gate or security there.
Pro's and Con's:
the whole parking area was usable for parking and camping
you are only allowed to enter the camping area with a negative test result
The Gate was very far away from the Gelände which makes it a not so nice volunteers job
parking the cars outside of the parking space to get tested lead to cars piling up, because there is not a lot of space
My thoughts on how we could to this at Kiez Burn would be:
Cars entering the Parking area. There could be parking volunteers telling them where they can park and where they can camp.
Free Campers can already set up their tents etc.
--> Only when you want to enter the site you will have to get tested
You go to the testing tent, which will be placed somewhere on the parking area, and get tested
you wait in the waiting tent or somewhere on the parking area
once you get your result you walk to the Gate: There you show your negative testresult, ID and ticket. You get your wristband and are allowed to enter the site.
When entering the site you will be welcomed by Greeting.
Pro's and Con's:
Gate & Greeting stay closer together
no cars piling up
someone could test positive after having set up their tent already
using the limited space of the parking area for testing
having people hang out this much on the parking area might make it even more visible that there is no fence whatsoever. Having securities even before the parking might serve as a bit of a "buffer" to the Gelände Gate (tbh this is just something weirdly in my head, but not really a strong reason against this suggestion)
Will we have enough space on the Parking area to put a testing tent and a waiting tent there?
could security also be placed on the parking area next to the gate?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this :) Thank you!
